Carl Arredondo - WWL-TV Chief Meteorologist

Not much change in our weather with very warm to hot conditions and showers and thunderstorms developing late morning into the afternoon hours. Some downpours are possible. Much of the weekend rain chances depend on the tropical disturbance/Invest 90 that is expected to move into the Gulf. There may not be much development at all due to wind shear and dry air, but plenty of tropical moisture will move in.

30% chance this evening with temps starting in 80s falling to 70s. 20% overnight with mild and muggy lows in low to mid 70s. 40% Wednesday and Thursday before rain chances increase over the Memorial Day weekend.

We will keep you updated.
